will be critical ensuring that the america's cup in associated development will be as environmentally responsible. we would like to recognize the city, the mayor's office and the america's cup event authority for working to address the concerns of the environmental community, in particular, my organization appreciates the short-term and long-term air quality measures that are being implemented to reduce marine vessel and other air emissions and to off-set the shutdown of short side power for crew ships at pier 27. the requirements for cleaner engines and a new pier 70 dry dock electrification will be great. at the same time due to the fast tracking offer the america's cup eir, some of the documents, key documents like the mmrp and the se qua findings were released recently. it has made it difficult for others to review it completely. and what i would like to do is urge the planning department, the city port and the america's cup and other authorities to continue to work with the environmental community and neighborhood groups to resolve any remaining issues and to work closely with us to make sur

for the america's cup and in terms of them enjoying themselves, when they are here, and leaving with a favorable impression. hopefully they come back. nightlife in the city is under tremendous pressure and has been. if you look at some things that are coming down the pike like putting a ton of housing on 11th street which could dramatically reduce nightlife there and other parts of south of market where proposed changes could undermine nightlife. it is a constant struggle. it is critical in the next two years that we have nightlife, a great nightlife remaining for america's cup and we will continue to have that into the future. could you after my editorial is incumbent on the relationship between good night life and the america's cup? >> absolutely. i see it turning into the things in terms of the arts and entertainment side but also the business side. we want this to see the benefit. in a lot of ways it becomes to be this great visitor destination. we want to maximize the excitement and the effectiveness of our ability to manage the waterfront areas. we want this city to show its best foot forw
years of the problem of islam and the countries of south america. i want you to wonder stand that this is a passionate issue for me. the united states needs to have friends all throughout this hemisphere. we need to be a free, growing, and prosperous hemisphere from cuba to venezuela to honduras to to columbia to brazil. they need to be our friends and open and in trading relations and a democracy and they need to be close allies to the united states. this is our backyard. these are people -- the people share the values of the people of this country and we have an obligation for our and security, our own economic benefit, much less the benefit of the people in this region, to have a policy that makes sure that all the countries i mentioned are free and safe and prosperous. [applause] i look forward to working with the people here because this is obviously the capital, in many respects, of central and south america from an economic point of view. i look forward to working with people here in south florida to talk to you and work with you about how we can, in fact, create the o
announcements. the first is we are forming a strategic partnership. code for america is a nonprofit that has been presenting innovative ideas to city governments, and particularly, for san francisco. i want to expose them to everything we have in terms of direct customer services, challenges we have had for many years, and to ask them to work with the strategically to create, in a competitive nature and a strategic partnership, a relationship where we can have companies and individuals and the entrepreneurs come through code of america and get the kind of information for the challenges we are having in government, and to work with us to create the most innovative ideas possible. some of you may ask, what are we really talking about? for example, last january -- the best example i can give you is, i was intrigued by this application we have created in the mta, where we had a sf park. an innovative idea of creating parking applications to solve some of our congestion on the street. i brought that application to the conference of mayors in washington, d.c. and was immediately surrounded by no l
freedom and slavery and the growth of the british empire in north america. >> welcome to our class in colonial history. today our subject is the seven years war or the french and indian war. as the two names tell us, this war at least a duel meaning, a multifacetted meaning because it was a conflict fought in various areas of the globe. it was a conflict that began in 1754 in north america. through that beginning of the war in north america, france and britain came to be at war with each other and formally in europe, france and britain went to war against each other in 1756. by that time, as you'll see, their colonies in north america and their forces in north america were already joined in conflict. to understand the french and indian wars it's traditionally called american u.s. history and also the seven years war. one has to put it in the a very broad perspective of north american history and even european history, of course. looking beyond europe and france and britain in various corners of the globe. the war would be fought in north america where it began. it was joined in eur
freedom and slavery and the growth of the british empire in north america. in the following lecture, professornaire ret teaches about the seven years war or the french and indian war. this is about an hour 20 minutes. well, welcome to our classes in colonial history at the university of texas at arlington. and today, our subject is the seven years war or the french and indian war. and as the two names tell us, this war has at least a dual meaning, really a multifacetted meaning because it was a conflict fought in various areas of the globe. it was a conflict that began in 1754 in north america. and through that beginning of the war in north america, france and britain came to be at war with each other. and formerly in europe, france and britain -- colonies in north america and their forces in north america were already joined in conflict. so to understand the french and indian wars that's traditionally called an american/u.s. history and also the seven years war, one has to put it in a very broad perspective. of north american history and even european history, of course looking bey
to say, and i have said before, we are in favor of the america's cup and really want to see it go forward with the assurance that we're looking at a positive and our mental legacy. i want to say the we're very supportive of what the port has been able to do so far around the beginning storm water pollution. i think with negotiations with the regional board, we are there in terms of really good mitigation that will be precedent-setting for the port romanick going forward. some of the other key issues like increased boatyard position and increase sewage dumping from boats, we are going to have to work with the city down the road through the water traffic plan, and i have a good sense that that will work out, but the eir, despite the amount of time that the planning staff and the court stepped into it and the consultants, it is a not a legally defensible eir. the mitigation monitoring and reporting program is not legally dependable, and i recommend that you continue this hearing and give the appellants a week to settle their differences with the city, because the clouds are gathering, and yo
dot org. i have been engaged in the review of the america's cup from the beginning and a provided a lot of comments, and i am encouraged by the progress that has been made today, but i would like to urge the supervisors to work closely with the appellants to work of the final concerns related to the environment. i think that, it seems to me that most of the environmental concerns can be addressed. i am also very appreciative of the supervisors who are in the district to raise the issue in support for the air quality concerns related to a shoreside power on pure 70 and pier 27, and it looks like there has been some very the progress which we may hear about later today which may make the pier 70 project more of a done deal. i think there is some uncertainty, and i think if we can hear more about the certainty of the project, but will address most if not all of the air quality measures. another option to consider as a backstop, because none of us knows what the future holds, it, for example, the pier 70 -- does not go forward. and like the other in our jon greaves, i do welcome the a

experiment in human freedom the world has ever known, the united states of america. [applause] what jefferson penned in 1776, and what we ratified in 1791, has stood the test of time. those ideas have spread ideas about freedom and liberty across the world. since the collapse of the iron curtain and the berlin wall, we've seen people not only in europe but also and other nations look to america for these ideas on human freedom and ideas on how to put together a constitution. so i think our system of government and the foundations of its republic, they are greater than any one president, one governor or congressman or anything else. because it has worked. we have had some other dark periods in our history. the mid 1800's. through all of those challenges, the basic structure of america has remained unchanged. the basic secret of success, while we may have lost it for a period of time, while we have administrations that may not understand it like this administration does not get it, i think the people come around and make the right corrective action. just like the market has a correction, i thin

and the entrepreneurs come through code of america and get the kind of information for the challenges we are having in government, and to work with us to create the most innovative ideas possible. some of you may ask, what are we really talking about? for example, last january -- the best example i can give you is, i was intrigued by this application we have created in the mta, where we had a sf park. an innovative idea of creating parking applications to solve some of our congestion on the street. i brought that application to the conference of mayors in washington, d.c. and was immediately surrounded by no less than five additional measures that said, that is something happening in san francisco. we can use that idea here. it is that kind of example where we have more ideas to share, where we can create more applications than create ideas, through the code of america, working with our technology entrepreneur is, working with city departments, with the leadership of our mayor's office, board of supervisors, to challenge us to come up with more ideas as to how we could solve some problems that plag

[applause] i would also like to give a special thank you to the conservative liberty alliance who gave a lot of help and support to the effort
of the america's cup to the port and the city. we believe the 34th america's cup will bring to the port of san francisco and the san francisco bay a world-class venue for sailing well beyond the event. i mentioned a little about public access on the waterfront. we will be accelerating major public benefits, not just in the area of the piers, but as far down as pier 80 and beyond the port property. major port infrastructure upgrades, we have not contemplated a plan in either the capital plan or the waterfront land-use plan for fixing pier 30-32. we're getting the benefit of those upgrades. the tenants, we are very mindful of any impact on the tenants that would be displaced in the process. you should be proud of the real- estate division's efforts to do outreach to all of the tenants trying to make a concession easy for them, but there are many will see major benefits as a result of having the america's cup, both retail and maritime. we talked a lot about environmental stewardship. that has been a major theme of the planning efforts. we are very proud of the staff level of the project. i want t

[applause] all of you in this room know my strong pro-life stand. i have a niece with down syndrome and i have been very active in my pro-life stand and i want to thank governor romney for becoming a champion for pro- life issues. he vetoed every bill that came across his desk as governor that would hurt our pro-life stand. we know how difficult that was to do in a state where he's from. thank you, governor romney, for having the courage to do that for america. thank you.

a lifelong america cup fan, a founder of the acoc. at street francis we have 2400 members who love boating. and thousands of our members are enthusiastic about the america's cup coming to san francisco. on behalf of those members, and sailors across the bay, i implore this board is to follow through on your previous vote to support the america's cup and reject this appeal. i believe that this board would be acting in the best interest of all san franciscans by denying this appeal. as you have seen, they have spent thousands of hours in addressing every possible environmental impact in the best way possible. they have done a proper, thorough, and adequate eir, have modified it based on comments from our citizens, and have devised many measures. they are committed to making the america's cup a showcase of environmental responsibility. with the jumbotron issue, they are flexible and there will be more solutions reached. the economic benefit through hosting the america's cup will help all san francisco and the city overall. in fact, our union staffed club is already seeing substantial economic

raising area. in 2012 the america's cup and other events are using smaller versions of the vessels. based on that, based on the speed of the vessels and the links they would like to have these races extent, they have shrunk down this area. you may have seen earlier diagrams that have a dotted line going into richardson bay going up toward into island. with the maneuverability of the boats and the desire to bring them close to spectators on shore for the first time, they need a smaller area. this has provided benefits to our planning process including as you will see leading a channel to the northern end of the golden gate bridge for traffic to continue even during the race time and this was vital to the coast guard and other maritime stakeholders and other transportation opportunities to make sure we do not close this pork for this event but rather they can coexist in commerce and the special side-by-side. moving to the next slide this is the proposed race area. this is a larger potential area. however it continues to leave the northern shipping channel. also some areas that are hard to s
of having the america's cup, both retail and maritime. we talked a lot about environmental stewardship. that has been a major theme of the planning efforts. we are very proud of the staff level of the project. i want to mention terry shore and diane, who are major advocates of this major air quality improvement project, and there are many other efforts. obviously, it has helped accelerate the terminal project, as you saw earlier today. that is probably the key benefit to the port. i mentioned 30-32, and the waterfront land-use plan, the mixed use project at that location, and it will generate many jobs during the construction phase of all of this work and through the event. there are some risks. would want to share just a few of those. as i mentioned earlier, the cost of preparing the waterfront for the event is considerably higher than we project it when we were before you and the board of supervisors last year, estimated at $105 million, but it went up substantially as they undertake the work. we're not seeing in this proposal a financial participation in the way that we normally do
and weeks ahead, i will crisscross this continent again and again, carrying our cause everywhere in america.
